Sewing Industry Leader, Janome reaches 50 Million mark

Janome America Inc, a leading manufacturer of home sewing machines, announced the production of their 50 millionth sewing machine. A crowning achievement in the sewing machine industry, Janome's 50 millionth machine represents a rich history of company pride and a world-renowned reputation for excellence.

“We are very pleased to announce the production of the 50 millionth sewing machine,” said Jiro Hagiwara, president and CEO of Janome America Inc. “This is a huge milestone for Janome with a continuing promise to take pride in every machine manufactured and ensuring that the highest precision quality is incorporated into Janome sewing and quilting products.”

Janome's history began in 1921, when founder and sewing manufacturing pioneer, Yosaku Ose, began using an unprecedented round 15 class metal bobbin system instead of the traditional long shuttle system. Janome in Japanese means “eye of the snake” and soon the innovative design of the round bobbin system earned the company its name and established it as a leader in the sewing machine industry.

In 1960, Janome purchased the well established sewing manufacturer, The New Home Sewing Machine Company, originally founded in 1860, bringing Janome to American soil. Always on the forefront of ingenuity, Janome technology introduced the world's first programmable, computer sewing machine in 1979, the MEMORY 7.

Other triumphs include the introduction of the Memory Craft 8000 in 1990, the first home-use computer sewing machine with professional style embroidery and the Memory Craft 10000 in 2000, which connected to a PC via USB cable, further enhancing Janome's position as a pioneer in the industry.

Janome delivers the most powerful, sophisticated home machine on the market, with patented technology and industry-leading software. The 2008 line of Janome machines features legendary Janome quality for a wide range of sewists.

The Magnolia line is a full line of affordable multi-featured machines while the 1200D serger provides professional functionality for the home market. With computer models that consistently stand out for their ease of use and precise stitch results, Janome ensures their products will continue to inspire creativity.
